This Surprising Food Show Beat Harry And Meghan's Oprah Interview At The Emmys

No matter if you are someone that follows everything about the royals or not, everyone heard about or watched the massively revealing interview that Oprah conducted with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. It was undoubtedly one of the most-watched segments to appear on television this year with more than 49 million people worldwide watching it in just three days, according to theĀ Mirror. Since the interview was one of the most highly anticipated segments to appear after the couple left the royals last year, it only seemed natural that it was nominated for an Emmy.

The interview with the couple earned Oprah a nomination in the "Hosted Nonfiction Series or Special" category (via Deadline). However, the special interview that sent shockwaves around the world did not win the coveted award for this category. Instead, Stanley Tucci won for his new CNN series, "Stanley Tucci: Searching For Italy." The loss for Oprah was certainly a surprise to many that watched the award show.

Stanley Tucci revealed a very personal struggle

Other shows in the category apart from Oprah's CBS special included a Netflix series, "David Letterman's My Next Guest Needs No Introduction," "United Shades of American With W. Kamau Bell" from CNN, and "Vice" by Showtime (via Deadline). CNN has won many Emmys for "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown" and "Vice" took the award last year. Apart from those two, Letterman and Oprah have both obviously won Emmys in the past. So, the new series hosted by Tucci might have been considered the underdog of the group.

Though Tucci was not there to accept the award himself, he had recorded a speech prior to the event. In his acceptance speech, Tucci discussed his battle with cancer three years ago, which he recently shared publicly. He described the struggles he faced such as relying on a feeding tube for six months. With that knowledge, the win for the delightful food show seems all the more rewarding and deserved.
